23 of Our Favorite Wedding Movies

Grab your fiance and snuggle up while watching one of these movies about you guessed it — weddings and wedding planning. Which one is your favorite? Let us know below!

Wedding Crashers

A movie revolving around weddings that we can watch over and over again. It has also inspired us to try and crash a wedding (but we haven’t – yet!)

Be honest, how many times could you watch this hilarious film?

Runaway Bride

A reporter (Richard Gere) covers a story about a woman (Julia Roberts) who leaves a string of men at the altar, spoiler alert – they fall in love.

Sweet Home Alabama

One of the most romantic movie proposals and a gorgeous, Southern wedding! It's definitely one of our favorites.

27 Dresses

All girls can learn something about being a bridesmaid from Jane (Katherine Heigl) who is the epitome of “always a bridesmaid never a bride.” Don't fret she finds her groom at the end!

Four Weddings and a Funeral

This movie includes some of the greatest wedding toasts ever heard. The movie follows a group of friends through weddings, divorces and finally a funeral.

Mamma Mia!

We are suckers for a good musical -- especially one with ABBA music and a gorgeous wedding scene!

My Best Friend's Wedding

What would you do if your best guy friend becomes engaged and you realize you are in love with him? That’s what happens to Julianne (Julia Roberts) in this popular wedding movie.

The Philadelphia Story

A 1940’s movie about a socialite who is in the midst of planning her second wedding when her ex-husband shows up. This movie had a top notch cast, script and plot -- we give it an A+ all around!

Father of the Bride (1950)

The original Father of the Bride brilliantly portrays a wedding from a father's point-of-view. Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor star in this classic wedding tale.

Father of the Bride (1991)

A remake of the orginial Father of the Bride this time starring the hilarious, yet vulnerable Steve Martin in the title role. This movie was every bit as enjoyable as the orginial and we love Franck as the exuberant, over-the-top wedding planner.

The Five-Year Engagement

While the movie wasn’t the greatest, the proposal and the cute wedding scene at the end helps this movie make our list!
13 of 23

My Big Fat Greek Wedding

Nothing better than a happy ending and learning that Windex and cure anything! Cheers to crazy families that make us who we are and influence us in so many ways.

Bride Wars

We love to hate this movie because nothing is more terrifying then imagining getting married on the same day as our best friend.
15 of 23

American Wedding

The finale to the American Pie series ends with the American Pie crew getting back together for a pretty wedding full of comedy and love.
16 of 23

The Wedding Planner

Seriously what is better than Jennifer Lopez, Mathew McConaughey and a movie about wedding planning?
17 of 23

The Wedding Date

Kat (Debra Messing) hires a male escort, Nick (Dermot Mulroney) to be her date at her half-sister's wedding in hopes of making her ex-fiance jealous.
18 of 23

The Wedding Singer

We love this movie where Robbie (Adam Sandler) and Julia (Drew Barrymore) are engaged to different people, but realize they are perfect for each other. The proposal on the plane makes this movie extra special.
19 of 23

High Society

A re-make of The Philadelphia Story with a musical twist. Grace Kelly sets the standard of what to wear for a second wedding in this classic movie.
20 of 23

The Graduate

One of the most memorable wedding scenes of all time and one of our favorite dresses!
21 of 23

The Hangover

There is nothing better than a movie about a bachelor party gone terribly wrong (or right?) We love how understanding the bride was that her groom was orange.
22 of 23


Another Jennifer Lopez movie about a MIL that tries to ruin her son's wedding and attempts to steal the brides spotlight.
23 of 23

Muriel's Wedding

The movie focuses on Muriel, an awkward social outcast who dreams of Prince Charming and a big, glamorous wedding.

    I love these movie choices, with the exception of Bride Wars and the Runaway Bride, which were awful. Muriel’s Wedding is, I think, my favourite – has anyone ever wanted to be a bride more?

    Great movies! Unfortunately, my fiance considers these to be ‘chick flicks’ so there’s no way I can get him to watch them with me lol. Perfect for a movie night with the bridesmaids and/or Mom though! Thanks! :-)

    Definitely the original “Father of the Bride” followed by “The Philadelphia Story”/” High Society” running a very close second and tied with each other!!

    Love the classics ~ they simply don’t make them like they used to, or any better! The music in “High Society” is the absolute best ~ how can you possibly top Frankie/The Chairman of the Board, Satchmo/Louis Armstrong, and Bing Crosby all together in one film? And the glamorous, glorious beauty that is Grace Kelly, wearing her actual, real “skating rink size” (per co-star Celeste Holm!) engagement ring from her own real Prince Charming-to-be. Now THAT was a ring! Story is that the stones came from one of his mother’s “old tiaras.” (Now, I don’t know of anyone who can beat that, I don’t care how big it is!)

    If it sounds like I love that movie actually more than my first pick, I don’t. I just had a little more to say about it up front!

    I really do love “Father of the Bride” best of all. With Elizabeth Taylor at her young, blooming beauty best, and Spencer Tracy at his comedic, but sympathetic/grouchiest/financially devastated father of said bride best, and Constance Bennet as the best “take charge of everything immediately” Giant of Bridal Industry mother of the bride I have ever seen! Nothing, but nothing fazes her, and her scene when describing to FOTB Spencer about how every girl dreams of walking down the aisle in the church in a white bridal gown and veil “which she can only wear once – JUST once” is so touching it makes me tear a little. And he’s suddenly worried that she’s been brooding over it for 20-some years, but she reassures him she hasn’t at all, “but I HAVE thought about it” and that breaks him. He’s now just the follow along checkbook and pen in hand dad, and should NOT answer the phone, the doorbell, OR read the mail! The dream sequence is magnificent in its comedic horror, but the wedding day just tops it all in beautiful justice, touched with a bit of pathos, when Tracy is sprinting past and squeezing through massive knots of people filling his home to the rafters during the reception, trying to see Kay and give her a last farherly kiss before she leaves on her honeymoon. Its a wonderful story, full of humor and love and a little horror on the side, but tells the tale beautifully from beginning to end! Unfortunately, the only decent glimpse we get of her rings is at the very end, in the brief scene where she calls home to say goodbye to her father before leaving on her honeymoon with new hubby Buckley. She is seen close-up, holding the phone earpiece with her left hand fortunately, saying thank you, and love you and goodbye. If you get a screen grab at that point, or just get close up to your TV screen, you can see the marvelous Emerald cut center stone with what looks like baguettes on either side, but not much detail on the smaller wedding band. Looks like Buckley really IS the “wonderful business man” who “makes something” according to Kay! Looks like good money is what he makes, to me!

    TCM is the best source for any of them, if you don’t have them on your DVR (raises hand enthusiastically) or on DVD.

Escort cards are extremely easy to personalize and an excellent way to bring in your wedding day colors -- from calligraphed seating cards set atop a textured linen to apples tagged with each guest's name or small personalized bundles of lavender tied off with string. Other ways to display escort cards: Pin them to a clothesline, post them on a board covered in color-coordinated ribbon, or incorporate them into your cocktail hour using personalized stirrers tagged with guests' names.
